Brown Recluse at Danger Danger Gallery April 23

Brown Recluse at Danger Danger Gallery April 23

Brown Recluse serves up gorgeous, shimmering indie pop, equal parts jingle and jangle, the kind of sound that you haven't really heard since the golden era of 90s twee, or perhaps the Elephant 6 collective at its height. The band is on Slumberland Records (the birthplace, essentially, of twee pop, and now home to acts like the Pains of Being Pure at Heat and Crystal Stilts), so it would seem that they're right at home. If you want to put it as simply as possible, most of their songs could be described as delicate acoustic ditties wrapped in warm, atmospheric synth, but you only have to listen to the giddy trumpet solo of "Rainy Saturday" and then the electronic psych of "Meridian Sound (Part Three)" to be affirmed that these guys are anything but one trick ponies. Their music is much more welcoming than the creepy, venomous spider with whom they share a name. Danger Danger Gallery, 5013 Baltimore Ave., 9pm, $5 - $10 donation, All Ages - Joe Poteracki
